But on the final exam day, often everything once learned is forgotten in the flash of a second. This happens because of a tendency to underestimate the toughness of the questions and the scope of the syllabus in a combined way.

"I started past year papers before nearly one-half month before the examination. With those papers, I analyzed my speed and accuracy which helped me to overcome stress and to be confident at the examination.” – Rohit Kumar, 100 percentile scorer in JEE Main March Session

"I solved nearly 30 past papers of JEE Main 2019 and 2020 and identified the topics with higher weightage or the ones that needed more extensive preparation. It is best to take these up when you are well-versed with the material and have to get into the mindset of NTA examiners and think through their typical patterns. This usually helps with ambiguous questions in the paper.” - Siddhant Mukherjee, 100 percentile scorer in JEE Main February Session
